12. Chiefs stop Jets at goal line (1969)

In the 1969 AFL Divisional playoffs, the Kansas City Chiefs were tasked with going into windy Shea Stadium to take on the New York Jets. New York was the defending world champion, having pulled off the massive upset in Super Bowl III over the Baltimore Colts the year prior. The Jets were favored to win the game, with most believing the golden right arm of quarterback Joe Namath would be enough. Instead, the contest turned into a defensive battle with neither team scoring a touchdown into the fourth quarter.

Finally, Namath drove the Jets down to the Kansas City 1-yard line with the help of a pass interference call in the end zone. New York twice handed the ball off to running back Bill Mathis, only to be stuffed both times by middle linebacker Willie Lanier. On third down, the Jets tried to run a play-action pass, only to have it sniffed out by outside linebacker Bobby Bell. New York was forced to settle on a field goal, making the score 6-6. The Chiefs would win on a Gloster Richardson touchdown on the following drive.
